You need to have TIME to play to reach endurance scores - 7500 isn't an unreasonable goal.

To maximise your points over time:

First play every daily game possible, then play every hourly game possible - every hour - and in between play quizzes.

You'll be amazed at how quick that 7500 comes around.

AND remember to rate every quiz you play - every 5 quizzes rated gives you another 100 points!

I am trapped in the vicious circle of chapter 3. One of the tasks is to get 10,000points in a day, which I did yesterday. Then there was a short wait. Now I've gotten back to needing 10,000 points in a day again. Is it my wrong choices? I thought I went to the Ascension page yesterday after getting the required points. I will be plugging along to another 10,000 points today unless the guardian takes pity on me. By the way, this is still fun and better than being at work!

You did walk around quite a bit today. Are you sure you've explored all your options? smile

I thought I explored everything. The only think I didn't do was click on the one with the red letter warning of a very long wait! Do I have to get 10,000 points again today?

I'm still stuck on 3 too, Golfmom, but I'm stuck at a daily game target. For some reason, my scores have all been roughly the same.... 1400-1530, which is about 30 points too short. wink

Gotta tell you folks ... the updating of the question database with new questions has made some of the tasks that were quite doable a few weeks ago almost impossible now. I'm stuck at one right now and it may take a long time to get past it while it was old hat just recently.

Fixed the two you are stuck on - they were indeed now a bit rude smile (I really need to make myself a list of which game is used where - totally missed that segment in the last update)

Thanks for the assist Wes.

I have been enjoying the Quest, but I seem to have reached an impasse. I am in Chapter 4 and I have reached a challenge dealing with Gold Member Madness. The target assigned is extremely high for this game (most games are won with no one reaching this score). That would not have been a problem in earlier challenges along the Quest, but this is the first time that the target is not dropping. I have been here now for over two weeks and still face this very high target. If this is how it is meant to be, I will continue to play Gold Member Madness (it is actually one of my favorite games and I do score well on it, just not this well) and some day I will reach this magic number.

Keep trying! I was at the same hurdle for about 10 days, and then got just the right combination of question (or sheer luck). I, too, was waiting in vain for that number to change, but it out-stubborned me. smile

Good luck!

There is also a link right beside the link to play Ascension Quest in the Gold Members section of the home page. I see it every time I play, since I can't use the dropdown list from Games to get there - that list is so long that Ascension Quest is offscreen on my laptop.

I'm with you on that one Looney. My games list doesn't go past "Team Heroes". I realise this is no doubt my fault as I'm using a Sony laptop which doesn't allow me to change the resolution to something much smaller. So instead, because we have the ability as Gold members, I've set up direct menu links to whatever page I want. But still, it's kind of annoying to have to do that and that practice can make for a very lonnnng list of menu choices lol. It would be nicer if the games list would "scroll" instead of sitting there pretty much stagnant.

Girlies, if you hold the Ctrl key, then scroll your mouse wheel, you can increase or decrease the size of the font to allow you to pack more onto your screen. See if that works.
